Just wanted to thank all of the people who are involved in creating the template/doing the work, you guys deserve a ton of credit for the creativity/willingness to work.

I have some minor Photoshop skill and can help use the template for requests (but not until ~Friday, as I have an exam I'm in the middle of prepping for on Thursday [PS. I'm not on HF right now, I'm studying ]), hopefully I can make a few to lighten the load for those who are helping.

Everyone seems fine with it and HarryI's time argument is a damn good one. It's no use working on something which may just cause more indecision.

We got a good one, let's roll with it.

If you need help with requests, let me know. I'll give you a hand.
do mine, I'll pay you with your money

I only wrote it because that pic of Saku with the caption about him not learning french made me think of Gionta's first game as captain.



Gio is smart, just give the mob what it wants and you won't hear **** for the rest of the year.

Anyway..whats wrong with having TWO different sets for the theme. You want a specific set.. request the person to make it.

If anything.. it will make two peoples job's a lot easier.
it's just not the same. it'd feel like people want to be part of cliques more than anything else.

We've been there, we've done that and it is simply not a good idea to have different templates/themes.

I was curious to see what was your idea with the theme. Sad you're letting this down. Feel creative man, your word is still valuable.

Good point there, one that I didn't consider.

Anyway.. I really don't mind anymorel. I just want a request thread for any.. I guess if people aren't happy.. they can go to their own.

I'll give it a shot, I just dont want to cause any more indecision. The thread started out with the Respect theme. CHamps went ahead and worked on the Aretha Franklin record which had already caught my eye in the last thread.

I proceeded to spend lunch working on it only to see that the final choice wasn't so final anymore.

Now I'm not mad about it, I had a creative lunch, which is nice. I just don't wan't to play "avatar idea ping-pong" if you know what I mean.

Also, the OP seemed to point in the same direction, but if people are open to ideas... I'll see if I can brew something up and see what happens.

I think we need to stop...all ideas are good and funny. Now time to choose one. The Learn Le Franch idea is good cause it can incorporate elements from other themes...

He's only going to show us an alternative to the Learn Le french theme. Let's give him a shot.

Sure I don't mind "tweeking" the template. It's just that, like photoshop threads, this could go on forever with valid, funny ideas.

Anyway, you guys are the PS kings, so I'm not going to get in your way. Tell us what the template is so we can start thinking about our avatar!

The French theme came in second place by the way. We need to get the avatars done asap since the our first playoff game is on Thursday. Quite a few users stepped up to work on the Learn Le French theme so we just went with that.

I hope I didn't offend anyone... We just need to get these avatars done.

Not sure I get it...

Is it supposed to be an English word with a random "le" in front? Or can it be a real French word or what?

I'm not a huge fan of either theme, then again, judging by how many times I took part in avatar themes I guess it's apparent forcing myself to an avatar isn't my thing. If I come up with something, maybe I'll make a request, or perhaps I'll change my mind when if I come up with a good idea regarding whatever is selected as our theme. I also have zero objection to going with multiple themed avatars. I wouldn't suggest 10 different themes, but if guys want to pump out 2 different types, I don't see the harm. When the # increases to 3+ there's obviously a problem. lol
